The Bible often expresses the things of God in human form or with human feelings to accommodate our limited understanding.

We experience many losses when someone close to us passes away. When this happens, we go through intense emotional suffering of deep sadness, which seems like paralysis – things moving in slow motion or time stops altogether.

In the church, we often think it is wrong if someone has his grief. However, sadness and the emotional release of crying is a God-given response to something sorrowful that has happened. Jesus came to the grave of His friend Lazarus, knowing that He was going to pray for his resurrection, yet, “Jesus wept” (John 11:35)

That joy might seem awfully distant to someone coping with a recent loss. But we will survive the journey with God as our companion and counselor.

Weeping is often the most common sign of grief. Christ will bear your suffering because he said give me everything you care about. Start talking to God like this:


Father, I cast my care upon you, for you careth for me. I ask your loving arms to wrap around my heart to remove the pain. Allow me to feel your loving presence in the name of Jesus Christ, my  Saviour Amen.
